I think this guy should just give it up a trade for a new Phoenix. However, I have a feeling this is one trade-in Stewart wouldn't take.

We are considering wintering in a Florida campground between Gainesville and Ocala.  I know the PC is fitted with tank heaters for cold weather, but how low?  Average temperatures for the area per AccuWeather.com for January is upper 60s-70 daytime to mid to upper 40s at night.  Okay so far, but record lows mostly in the 20s with a couple as low as 10!!  Anyone have experience with this?  We have insulated windows.

For us, it was the door flange that attaches onto the pin that broke.  The entire door had to be replaced, although the wood panel insert was transferred to the new door.

The bottom hinge on our PC also broke while on a trip.  After calling Norcold, they shipped a new door to the closest repair shop and paid to have it installed.  All this when out of warranty!  Although theyre great in that respect, I agree that it would seem to better to just build the door with a stronger hinge.

I have leveling jacks and wouldnt be without them.  It does make short work of leveling, but equally important to us is the stability.  We often stay for a month in Florida, and the jacks keep the coach from moving/shaking when walking around or when leaving/entering through the door.  And as for the cost, youll get a lot of that back when you sell or trade makes them relatively inexpensive.

We recently went to the Phoenix factory for some minor fixes while still under warranty. Theyre great as usual patient and done quickly. We stayed for a week under $200 at the Elkhart campground. As usual, several Class A lookers - we talked up Phoenix Cruiser.  Of course theres always the national RV/MH Hall of Fame to see, but we looked for some other things. Two we would highly recommend:

Amish Country Tour. A self-guided driving tour to everything Amish with a free map and CDs from the Elkhart Visitors Bureau, one mile from the campground:

We split it into two days to make it more leisurely. Saw many Amish homes/farms and buggies. Lots of great places to eat and shop. We made a separate day at the Shipshewana Flea Market largest in the Midwest:

Studebaker Museum (South Bend). A glorious place if youre into 50s and earlier cars. Plus a great carriage museum including the carriage that carried President Lincoln the night of his death and carriages made by Studebaker for several presidents. And of course, lots of outstanding classic Studebakers. Under $12 for two with over 65 and AAA discounts:

I have followed the directions for Surround Sound.  All works as shown on the instructions accept I get no sound from the right front speaker (okay on left front, subwoofer and both rear). What to do? (My first attempt at using the Surround Sound.)  Im thinking theres a wiring problem from the factory.  shrug

Thanks for all the input.  Is this a great forum or what?  No repeat of the problem last night.  One more observation that I failed to put in my comments was that during the problem, the voltage was low, about 105v, in the outlets that did work.  Maybe the best answer at this point is there was a drop in voltage and the generator kicking in reset things.  Keeping my fingers crossed ThumbsUp

Follow-up.  Just by chance, I switched off the 30 amp shore power outlet and started the generator.  Guess what?  All the outlets worked.  Now get this, I turned off the generator and switched on the shore power outlet and voila, all the outlets work. shrug

Six AC electrical outlets on our 3100 quit working in the middle of the night: TV, kitchen, behind sofa for the Areobed, inside the passenger side shirt closet above the bed, bathroom GFI, and exterior.  The bathroom GFI is not tripped (no power).  There was no storm.  No breakers are tripped (checked multiple times plus twice more at wifes insistence).  All other outlets work fine: the two front sidewalls and the two under both beds.  Dont hear the converter under the bed working either.  The TV and DVD above the bed work fine but cant figure where theyre plugged in.  The microwave works wheres it plugged in?  Hmmm Help

We made one last trip to the factory while still under warranty.  They replaced the rusted screws and the oxidized spare tire latch, and fixed a couple of other minor things quickly, no charge.  Good people.  Stuart suggested just buying a new one we didnt even dare look.

Well, you do know the story about duct tape?
 
The only thing an RVer needs in the tool box is duct tape and WD40.  If something moves that isnt supposed to, use the duct tape.  If something doesnt move that is supposed to, use the WD40. nod

Thanks for the replis.  Kinda forgot.  We stayed at Shipshewana Campground many years ago think well try that again.  We went to the flea market, but it was in late fall and a lot of the venders were gone (no fleas left).  Maybe itll still be good in September.  I do remember being awakened at 5:00 in the morning with clip-clop-clip-clop, the Amish on the way to town.  Billy, like your saying at the bottom of your reply, Insanity: Doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results.  Reminds of one my favorite sayings:

If you always do
What youve always done,
Youll always get
Get whats youve always got.

Were making a trip to the factory next month for some minor fixes while still under warrantee.  Wheres the best place to stay close to there?  Then headed to the Indiana Dunes.  Same questions any recommendations on a campground?
